What is it?

The Stembership program is an age-old way to enjoy the iconic Schooner Timberwind; plank ownership.  By combining the concepts of stewardship and membership, the program allows for members to realize tangible, and profitable benefits, while also providing the capitol needed to purchase, rebuild, and endow the civic asset.  The goal of the program is to fund $4M by 2022.  This program is how the Maine Day Sail "3-Star Mission" will be accomplished.

The paradigm shift is in how we utilize the vessel.  Stembership allows members of all ranks to experience the schooner on a "plank ownership" level.  Stembership grants members boarding rights.  In other words, if you are a member that likes to read by the water every morning at sunrise, you are welcome on the Timberwind any morning you like.  From there, the options are nearly limitless.  We simply require "Safe Water".  That is our boundary policy.  It is our intention that you maximize every aspect available to your rank.  We want to help you do that.  With that said, we must remain sustainable.  As always, feel free to contact us with any questions.
